jumpsuit dress-up

I had a jumpsuit tailor-made for a ridiculously low price (about USD 38) at my tailor's.  Oh, the benefits of cheap labor in the third world!  It's black linen, short-sleeved, with patch pockets on the front and back.  It was kind of inspired by a jumpsuit from the Prada S/S 08 collection.

I had the tailor scrap the drawstring waist and opted for a more flattering flat waistband in front, and elastic waistband at the back (I need the volume back there.)  

Tonight I decided to play dress-up with my jumpsuit and put together more creative as well as normalized looks working around the jumpsuit.
